Moreover, the case study also indicated that the cash at the end of 2012 was $280 million, down from $400 at the end of 2011.
Business Transformation: As mentioned by Arthur Sulzberger, the news and information business has been undergoing huge transformation. Though the print business is very huge, the organization is no more in a situation to sustain in the market with the revenues generated from the print business. The news and information businesses are still in the process of recognizing where media consumption is moving and developing the strategies to capitalize on these changes in consumption.
Poor operating cash flow: New York Times has recorded poor operating cash flow in the financial year 2011. It is expected that the operational cash flows of the organization would be more disappointing in the financial year 2012. Due to the poor/negative operating cash flow, the organization is finding it very difficult to reinvent itself by financing innovative business opportunities.
Key Causes of the Problems at New York Times

The inability of the organization to monetize the online business is considered as a major reason behind the stagnant revenues in past few years. This is the reason why, the digital subscribers from outside the United States still just 10% of the total digital subscriptions that the organization enjoys.
